DALTON looks set to be on course for improvements totalling £94,000.
Kirklees Council cabinet members will next week be asked to consider approving a programme of streetscene works around the library and community centre as part of the funding.
New paving on the footway at the junction of Ridgeway and Harpe Inge
New paving off Ridgeway at the entrance to the Dram Centre
Signs to the Dram centre
Footway improvements on Arkenmore, as part of enhancing the area around the library and Dram Centre.
The programme of works will be carried out in Dalton under Kirklees Council’s Small Centre Improvement programme.
Kirklees cabinet agreed Dalton should be part of the programme and funding was put in place.
It was agreed in 2009 that there needed to be improvements adjacent to the library and community centre to create a better living environment for Dalton residents.
Councillors say the proposals will improve the image and attractiveness of the area, create a focal point and greater sense of identity for Dalton.
They also want to improve pedestrian safety through the work.
The programme will cost £98,000 and the shortfall of £4,000 will come from Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing from their budget for the Dalton Neighbourhood Focus.
The housing provider will also carry out landscaping and provide seating and signage around the area.
If the cabinet approves the works programme scheme at its meeting next Wednesday, the paving work at the junction of Harpe Inge and Ridgeway will begin in February and everything else from March.
It is designed to complement a similar scheme to footways at the junction of Cow Heys and Long Lane completed last August.
